CityHome presents a vision for a transformable 15'x15' apartment, that transforms into an awesome space for sleeping, lounging, hosting dinner parties, exercise studio, home office, or movie theater. Furniture for each activity is stowed in thickened walls, floor and ceiling with a gantry system. Finally, we consider the role that common spaces can play in a building of city-homes.
